A Survey of Internet Energy Efficiency Metrics

Kerry Hinton, Fatemeh Jalali

Abstract

Several metrics have been widely applied to quantify the “energy efficiency” of the Internet and ICT. In this paper we analyse and compare these metrics when applied to telecommunication network equipment, networks and services. We show that different metrics can imply different, and possibly conflicting, strategies for improving energy efficiency. Some guidelines are suggested for the appropriate application of these metrics.
